Chun Hua Catherine Dong

Chun Hua Catherine Dong is a Chinese-born Montreal (Canada) based artist. She has exhibited her works and performed in multiple national and international venues and festivals. Among many other grants and awards, she was listed as one of the “10 Artists Who Are Reinventing History” by Canadian Art in 2017, and was a finalist of the Contemporary Art Award at Le Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in 2020. Her artistic practice is based in performance art, photography and video. Within the contemporary context of global feminism, her work deals mainly with cultural intersections created by globalization. She works on the idea of representation as a political tool to give visibility to those made invisible by dominant ideologies. Her newer works show the body as a bridge connecting East and West, past and present: a new version of hybridity for transcendence and healing.
